Oil higher as Ukraine rebels escalate conflict 


The Associated Press

The price of oil edged higher Tuesday on worries over potential supply disruptions after pro-Russian rebels escalated the Ukrainian conflict by occupying a major airport, just hours after a billionaire businessman won Ukraine's presidential election.

Prices had fallen after Ukraine's president-elect, Petro Poroshenko, said Monday he wanted talks with Moscow on ending the insurgency in the country's east.

Benchmark crude for July delivery was up 5 cents to $104.40 a barrel at 0625 GMT in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Due to a U.S. public holiday, the contract last settled on Friday, when it closed at $104.35.

Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, gained 41 cents to $110.73 on the ICE exchange in London.

Ukraine is a key conduit for Russian gas deliveries to Europe. A proposed solution to a dispute over Ukrainian natural gas debts to Moscow raised hopes that a supply cutoff would be averted. Russia's acceptance of Poroshenko's victory was also regarded as a sign of easing tensions.

The resurgence of fighting, as the government in Kiev responded with an airstrike to the rebels' occupation of the airport in Donetsk, a city of about 1 million in eastern Ukraine, underscored the uncertainties that remain.
